Ignorance Is Bliss T 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a

Description

The Ignorance is Bliss area is on the Finger Rock Trail a short distance past the turnoff to the Finger.
ISB Pinnacle is the first formation of many within the next quarter mile or so. This the only thing that I have done in the area after the right turn in the trail past the turn-off to the Finger. I have found other evidence of climbing activity around the larger more prominent formations just up trail. I do not know where Trials and Tribulations is.

This area is within 500' of the Trail and is not limited by the spring closure.

Getting There

About 3 1/4 miles up the Finger Rock trail is a small pinnacle that is literally on the trail, a short distance past the turnoff to the Finger. This is after the trail hooks right and heads east.
There are more formations a short distance up trail from here.

Great photos and story! Jun 9, 2015
I found a couple shots from the FA. 1991 I think.

I had absolutely no plan or concern for getting down. Gettin to the top is all that mattered back then.

Did I mention neither of us knew how to climb, Dave bought his rack at yard sale.

by the way, I have not been back and really don't know the rating.
